 WHAT IS AN AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMP?

Air source heat pumps (ASHP) absorb heat from the outside air which can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems and hot water. Air Source Heat Pumps can operate in temperatures as low as -15°C allowing them to provide heat to your home all year round. Air-Source heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the air is constantly being renewed naturally. An effective method of bypassing the environmental impact of Air Source Heat Pump is to power them with solar panels, allowing for a fully renewably powered heating system.

 
There are two main types of Air Source Heat Pump:
 
Air-to-water systems extract heat from the outside air and transfer it into a central
heating system.
 
Air-to-air systems extract heat from the outside air and feed it into the premises
through fans. Air to air systems cannot heat hot water but in the summer they can be
operated in reverse, providing cool air for your home.
